The 10 big takeaways from Newcastle United Carbao Cup final ticket announcement you need to know

It’s all hands to the pump for Newcastle United fans today as supporters get their heads around the ticketing news.

Newcastle United has confirmed how tickets will be sold to fans ahead of the Carabao Cup final against Manchester United at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, February 26.

Eddie Howe's side booked their place at Wembley with a 2-1 win over Southampton at St. James' Park on Tuesday night. It will be the club's first trip to Wembley since 2000 and a chance to win the first piece of major silverware since 1955.

Erik ten Hag's Manchester United will await Newcastle at the heralded Wembley Stadium, with a newly revitalised Red Devils side no doubt proving a tricky task for Howe's in-form Magpies.

With many lifelong Newcastle fans even struggling to score a ticket to watch the side play at home this season - over 34,000 fans were still waiting in an online queue for Carabao Cup semi-final tickets when they sold out - the club's allocation of final tickets will be gold dust on Tyneside.

As Newcastle United confirms how the Carabao Cup tickets will be rolled out, NewcastleWorld looks at the 10 major takeaways for fans.
